Only Idiots Still Believe in the Hard Work Ethic

The concept that “hard work makes you rich or at least middle-class” is one of those completely dishonest propaganda pieces that only a WASP or wannabe-WASP could mouth without the slightest hint of irony. Let us, for a minute, ignore the experience of people in other countries and concentrate on North America. If working hard improved your life wouldn’t black slaves and mexican agriculture workers have reached the middle-class and want to work harder?

In case some of you still believe that black slaves in a previous era or mexican farm laborers today are not hard workers, I encourage you to switch jobs with them and show us how hard work leads to a better life.

Some of the more disingenuous amongst you might say- “oops.. we meant studying and working hard in some profession or trade”. But is it true, even if you don’t care about it?

Most of you will agree that people who have successfully studied some branch of engineering at a state university or better in a developed country are both competent and knowledgeable in that area. So how come they keep getting laid off once they reach their 50s or even earliers? Does their competence really go down or is it something else? Maybe their bosses cannot exploit and abuse them with the same impunity as before or could it be that they are now due for benefits which their employers have no intention of paying out?

What about younger scientists in universities who do the bulk of work their superiors take credit for? How come they never seem to get a decent and stable job inspite of their hard work and dedication? Compare them to teachers who get significantly better compensation and benefits in the face of declining competence. Even scientists in industry who once enjoyed a good lifestyle and decent job security now find themselves cast off in their mid-50s with minimal severance pay and benefits.

In contrast we see many people in functionally useless or actively harmful occupations such as bureaucrats, administrators, administrative assistants, management, human resources etc enjoy stable and decent income regardless of the amount of “work” they do, it’ real impact or even its relevance.

We are therefore left with a tasteless choice. We have to either admit that the hard work ethic is, and always was, a lie to exploit the gullible- something that is much harder in the information age. The alternative is that those who promote that idea are too retarded to observe the world around them.

So what is it- Liar or Retarded?

    We’ve been sold so many lies that there is no truth left. Burn Babylon and start over!

    The gate to Auschwitz sported the motto ‘Arbeit macht frei’, “labour makes one free.”
    Interesting in this regard was a group of about 600 conservative Dutch calvinists from the Dutch village of Putten who were sent to a concentration camp as a reprisal for the Resistance killing of a German soldier. 95% died there. The high death percentage has often been related to their mentality of hard work and obedience — cunning and deceit were the only virtues that could give one an edge under the circumstances.

    anyways, I hear allot of people brag “how hard” they work-it’s just as pathetic as a pua bragging about how much pussy he gets.

    hard work is not a sign of status…

    it’s higher status not to care about status and work as little as possible to survive….

    Alot of the same people also put a qualifier that working smart is also as important as working hard.

    I think the point is “how much” of your labor do you get to keep….

    not really related but not unrelated either….

    Get into a field of work where you can get paid a lot of return per unit of your output; whether it is a boob job or a house-closing, then bear down on it. Do slash for cash night and day. Drive your clients from one place to another until they beg you to let them buy something, anything.
    This is America, boys: Where the strong come to live and the weak come to die.

    Failure to reason from incentives is a very common flaw.

    I marvel at day traders who endlessly analyze charts but never ask, “What does the ‘greater fool’ get for buying in besides enriching me?”

    I equally marvel at people who expect raises or benefits when the boss can simply fire them the day before the gravy train is due.

    Most astounding of all is people’s failure to understand that their bosses would not pay them a red cent if they could get away with it.

    They do not realize that responding to exploitation with hard work just makes exploitation profitable and thereby encourages more of it.

    If people only learned to ask: “Why would this person help me?” they could save themselves immeasurable grief in life.

    You haven’t dropped a link to my blog?

    Fine! I will have to do it for you! :P

    The Hispanic willingness to do shitty jobs has earned them the protection of the business wing of the Republican party.

      They get shitted on in different ways. This is why Todd Wooten stated that it is possible that Mexicans are “America’s New N*ggers” while blacks are “America’s Old N*ggers”…

    Who are you trying to CONvince here?

    Usually we prefer the term Aryan, but WASP will do. We know all about the ZOG state. The usual choice that is offered is to become a PUA like Roosh or Roissy, or to be a cubicle rat as many would put it.

    I reject those choices. Neither satisfies me. There is a certain type of man who does not believe in pride or self-respect. A man’s worth more than the value of his bank account or how many fine things he has. That’s the error in your materialism.

    You are inconsistant. I also blog. This article is about 200 words. You have taken care to italicize certain passages, to cut down the size of the paragraphs to improve readability. You have spend around 20-30 minutes on this post. You worked hard for no pay for people who you cannot see and do not know. The burning question is why did you do it?

    Because I can.

    My father was a hard worker.
    He immigrated and helped build up Germany from the bombed out shithole it was made into, even though basically the same Nazis that came and fucked up his country then payed him for rebuilding their own.

    He croaked from Asbestosis sputtering blood in a beautiful hospice.
    All payed for by the efficient German insurance and state bureaucracies, including the 10k€ shots of useless poisonous cancer drugs they pumped into him.

    Fuck hard work.
